Hey, do you think of something like this?

// List
		ArrayList<String[]> people = new ArrayList<String[]>();
		people.add(new String[] { "Alice", "Director", "San Diego", "23" });
		people.add(new String[] { "Bob", "Chairman", "Austin", "24" });
		people.add(new String[] { "Darth", "Sith Lord", "Las Vegas", "56" });
		String middleText = null;
		for (String[] person : people) {
			middleText = middleText + "<tr>" + "<td>" + person[0] + "</td>"
					+ "<td>" + person[1] + "</td>" + "<td>" + person[2]
					+ "</td>" + "<td>" + person[3] + "</td>" + "</tr>";
		String text = "<body>"
				+ "<h1>Products</h1>"
				+ "<table>"
				+ "<tr>"
				+ "<th>Name</th><th>Position</th><th>Residence</th><th>Age</th>"
				+ "</tr>" + middleText + "</table>" + "</body>" + "<p> </p>"
				+ "<p> </p>" + "<p>"
				+ "<ac:structured-macro ac:name='gallery'>"
				+ "<ac:parameter ac:name='columns'>1</ac:parameter>"
				+ "</ac:structured-macro>" + "</p>";
page.getJSONObject("body").getJSONObject("storage").put("value", text);
